'Blue Books are not a first source you think of when looking for genealogical information, but they can be useful nonetheless. Listing the names of thousands of those employed in public service in Western Australia in 1905, this contains full name of employee, office/job, date of present appointment, date of first appointment with the Government.

You can expect to find people named within their categories or government departments including as follows:
- Government employees in alphabetical order
- Governor’s staff
- Colonial Secretary’s staff
- Executive Council staff
- Staff listed by government department
- Return of officers giving security for due discharge of duties
- Consuls
- School head teachers, members of Boards of Education and attendance officers

Blue Books are summaries of governmental activities and contain many statistical records determined by the activities of the government and the economy and as such can prove useful references for determining an historical perspective at a given point in time. Given the lack of census records in Australia, these publications can often provide similar records for government employees.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
